Are you looking for an outdoor recreational activity in the Colorado Springs area that could be a family adventure or solo fun? Then look no further than geocaching. Getting started is simple; all you need is your mobile device, GPS receiver, or some other navigational tool to look up the coordinates.

What is a Geocache

For the normal geocache, first, a geocacher places a logbook (including pen or pencil), items to trade in a container, and records the coordinates of that cache. Next, the coordinates and location become shared on a listing site. Those that geocache then finds the coordinates on the site take their GPS devices and go hunting. Once they find the location and item, enter the entries into the logbook and online.

 

In the world of geocaching, treasures, or swag, are items that do not have a substantial monetary value. They may, though, be personal to those who hide the loot. Typical swag includes books, little toys, coins, hat pins, and different types of buttons.

 

Do not forget to return the cache to where you found it so that others may find it. The item, except the logbook, pen, or pencil, may be taken if you have something to leave in its place.

 

Some caches that move from one place to another. Hitchhikers, as referred to, usually have detailed goals assigned to their items. Some examples include placing the cache xx amount of distance from home.

 

Travel Bugs and Geocoins are specific caches that have websites for people to log and follow where they have been online.

 

Almost anything is as a cache except for food, drugs, andanything illegal. Refer to the rules of the listing site.

 

Some great places to geocache in and around Colorado Springs include the Fallen Firefighter Memorial or the Nature Center at Garden of the Gods.

 

Types of Geocache

 

Challenge Cache

This type of geocache requires the geocacher to complete individual geocaching goals before they can record that they found the cache. Possible tasks would include finding five caches in a particular category or locating a cache every day for 30 days.

 

Geocaching.com classifies this type of cache part of the Mystery cache. Other listing sites may consider the challenge cache a standalone class.

The Multi-cache occurs in one or more steps. Locate one, gather the coordinates, move to the next, again recording coordinates, and finally finding the container with the logbook.

 

Traveling Cache

After you have obtained the coordinates from the listing site, head out, find the cache, and then take it somewhere else. You would record the coordinates of where you placed the item so that the next geocacher can continue the cycle.

 

Location Cache

Location caches are close to a scavenger hunt. The geocacher has a description of what to locate. The item you are searching for could be a yellow fire hydrant, brown door, red and black boat, or pink flamingo. After finding the article, use your GPS device and record the location. A picture of both the object and device occurs as well. No one else can use this location as a find.
